Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with end-to-end business management software, Thryv.

Thryv understands that running a business can take over one's life. Through this partnership, ADIA members will be able to put their customers at the centre of their business, while getting time back for themselves.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with ADIA," said the Head of Thryv Australia, Elise Balsillie.

"Thryv is committed to empowering and supporting small-to-medium sized businesses. We know it’s been a challenging time for dental businesses and one of the biggest struggles is staying organised and communicating with customers and patients. Our software is designed to help dental practices manage and grow their business by minimising no-shows and manual processes.”

ADIA CEO Kym De Britt welcomes the new collaboration, "The partnership with Thryv provides our members and their clients with access to some of the most comprehensive marketing automation and management software available in the market today. We look forward to working with Thryv as we support our members and continue to encourage industry best-practice through valuable partnerships." Mr De Britt said.

ADIA CEO Update: Advocacy update

ADIA CEO Update: Advocacy update


ADIA welcomes new Federal Government

Following the election over the weekend, ADIA is working towards solidifying relationships with key MPs, both re-elected and new to Parliament. At the time of writing, we are still waiting to see if Labor has achieved a majority Government, or what a minority will look like in terms of key Independents.

The new Cabinet is due to be sworn in next Wednesday. We look forward to gaining an understanding of the portfolio allocation so we can continue advocacy work on behalf of our members.

In the meantime, below is a round-up of recent advocacy efforts from ADIA.

ADIA Advocacy Update

Australian Oral Health Collaboration (AOHC)

The AOHC gathered to discuss the next steps in moving forward with improved access to oral health services in aged care and awareness of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule following the federal election.


Australian Dental and Oral Health Therapists Association (ADOHTA)

ADIA met with ADOHTA to discuss attendance and involvement with ADX Brisbane. ADIA also briefed ADOHTA on current work in aged care, the CDBS, and ADOHTA’s possible involvement with the Australian Oral Health Collaboration.


New Zealand Dental Industry Group (NZDIG)

ADIA met with NZDIG to outline ADX Brisbane and discuss a New Zealand delegation for the event. We are also looking at ways to provide our members with more involvement at NZ events, and the possibility of sharing education resources and relevant data.


Dental Sector Working Group (DSWG)

ADIA and members of the Reg and Tech Committee attended a session to gain a greater understanding of the Australian Regulatory Guidelines for Advertising Therapeutic Goods (ARGATG), which was updated in 2021. This included both restricted representations and compliant comparisons. You can learn more about the current guidelines for applying the advertising code here. Both the 2018 and 2021 codes are in use until June 30 when the transition to the new 2021 code will be finalised.


Australian Dental Association South Australia Branch (ADA SA)

ADIA met with ADA SA to discuss promoting ADX Brisbane to South Australian oral health professionals in the ADA network, along with future projects in South Australia. We hope to see a delegation from the ADA SA office at ADX Brisbane.


Work with the TGA via the Reg and Tech Committee continues also. We will bring you further information on each of these collaborations via the CEO Update.

ADIA CEO Update: The ADIA Jobs Board Is Live

ADIA launches dental industry-focused job board

We are pleased to report the ADIA Jobs Board is now live and available for position postings.

Requested by our members, the site has been 18 months in the making. After extensive research, we have invested in the best platform for the requirement, and following consultation with various members, built the site with your needs in mind.

The ADIA Jobs Board will be accessible to candidates via search engine optimisation, the ADIA homepage, targeted social media advertising, and dedicated eDM communications to be shared with your networks. This approach will attract qualified candidates from both within and beyond the dental industry.


Post your jobs free of charge on the ADIA Jobs Board

The most important step to success for the project is to ensure the site is well-populated with quality roles when candidates begin to visit. It is for this reason, we invite you, our members to enjoy free unlimited job postings until 30 June.

To get started:

- Go to and click Post a Job

- Create an account for your company and set up a company profile

- Follow the prompts to post a job

Post a Job

One of the key features of the site is the ability for candidates to sign up for alerts for specific companies. Provided you spend time on your company profile and continue to post quality roles, candidates who wish to work with you will be directed to your positions as they become available by opt-in alerts.

We look forward to your support of the launch of the ADIA Jobs Board to ensure we have the roles available to attract quality candidates to your business.
